They are usually gray and white or brown and white with a red mouth. With super long limbs (arms and legs).

Now we know what sock monkeys are made of, but what are they? What do they mean? Etc.?

Also known as red-heel sock monkeys.

Sock monkeys are folk art and kitsch in the culture deriving from the United States and Canada.

In 1932, Howard Monk, did some changes to the dock monkey, today known as the Rockford Red Heel Sock Monkey, De-Tec-Tip. Since they originally had white heels.

Did you know sock monkeys were said to have a good luck charm to them.

while others will say 1953, where a woman named Helen Cooke hit a patent on the sock monkey.

However, some reports show John Nelson, patented the knit sock Monkey in 1868.

Rockford, Illinois is home of the sick Monkey.
